Due dates: The Hurricane Region newsletter, der Wirbelsturm, is published bi-monthly. They are planned to be available by the second Tuesday of each even numbered month. Back issues are available here. All materials need to be e-mailed to the Editor, Darrell Bryant, at email@example.com, no later than the first Tuesday (earlier is always better). A committee of proofreaders circulate the articles for corrections and improvements.
Authors: Any member who attends a PCA event, Porsche related event, or anything we car people might be interested in, and has a personal story to go along with it, is encouraged to write an article. Technical articles are always welcome! Articles can be from 200 to 2000 words. If you have an idea or have questions, contact the Editor.
Formats: Documents can be submitted in DOC, DOCX, RTF, or TXT formats. Do not embed photos in the document.
Photos: Photos should be JPEGs of about 1000 pixels on the long side, yielding roughly 1 Megabyte (MB). If that is Greek to you, just send a good photo, but avoid 10+ MB sized files. Send a few choices for each article, attached in the e-mail, not embedded in the document. If you are not the photographer, identify who was. If details about the photo are available, add them to the photo's filename, or otherwise explain. If photography is not your thing, it is the Editor's thing, along with many of our members.
Photographic contributors, you can help the Editor with cover photos and Parting Shot photos. The cover photo is a horizontal of 12" x 7.5" or an aspect ratio of 8:5. The size should be 1600w x 1000h pixels (or a little bigger). The Parting Shot can be in almost any format, and should be 1000 pixels or more on the long side. If you are pixel-illiterate, send a JPEG between 2MB and 10MB. I can do the resizing. Give me your best Jeff Zwart style shots!
